Donna Woodall is a skilled, genre-blurring singer & songwriter in the Milwaukee/WI music scene.
Donna artfully blends the musical styles of artists such as Carole King, Cassandra Wilson, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, Sting, Marvin Gaye, and Tracy Chapman with elements of traditional jazz and blues. The result? A fresh, new twist on familiar pop songs. Audiences are delighted by her eclectic song selections, cool originals, creative renditions of classic hits and jazz standards, and her bold moves into different music genres- all the while staying grounded in her jazz roots.
Donna’s writing talents first emerged on her self-produced album, “The Subject Love.” This labor of love let her flex her songwriting muscle, showcasing original material that ranges from what she affectionately calls “soulful folk” to fun “jazzy-pop.” Currently, she is penning new tunes that highlight her unique musical sound and perspective.
